The question I have with crowdfunding is why couldn't they get investment in the normal ways?

Simple answer, because any genuine investors wouldn't value their company anywhere near 5 million NZD

Usually an investor will want to see a return or profit

with crowd funding its about donating in a sense for a discount or freebie

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

@neoncricket that was a rhetorical question as it isn't hard to see why :) I should have added a smiley :)

Unrealistic expectations aside, the document linked earlier suggests that giving money is an "investment" which sounds misleading to me as it is just normal crowdfunding by the sound of it.

"Equity crowdfunding is risky. Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of business is very speculative and carries high risks. You may lose your entire investment, and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship."

After flying to 65k or so this seems to have pretty much stopped up at 71k, I guess the first offers were the rush of fanboys and the likes, but dosen't look like they'll get anywhere near their minimum of 250k.

He's set up a "Laver and Wood" Distributing branch. Indian made bats under the approval of James and sold exclusively to the Indian market...so they say.
I think there was a topic about it on here.

cheers Potzy, I was aware he was there this year, but I didn't realise he going to get bats made there, IMO worst news I heard for a while
